BEST OUT OF WASTE: 3 WASTE PLASTIC-BOTTLE CRAFT IDEAS TO DO WITH YOUR KIDS

Don’t get petrified by numbers, just imagine the fate of our ignorance! It’s time to educate our children about the harsh reality!

Hi everyone

Plastic is just not another waste! Simply saying, Increasing carbon footprint to global warming, mere littering of this single-use plastic can result in grave catastrophe.

While RRR is a one-thought-out solution (Not the movie yaar! It’s reduce, reuse, recycle), come let’s participate in this initiative with our children by reusing plastic bottles to make amazing crafts which are very useful.

Let’s learn the art of making crafts out of waste bottles:
